About Babak Seradjeh

Babak Seradjeh is a theoretical physicist with a special interest in quantum dynamics of correlated, disordered, and/or topological states of matter and their potential applications for novel devices and quantum information processing. Our research entails close collaborations with experimentalists across traditional disciplinary boundaries. The systems of interest include topological insulators and superconductors, especially those driven out of equilibrium. In particular, we study synthetic solid-state or atomic many-body Floquet systems under periodic drives. Recent work has focused on realizations, dynamics, experimental signatures, and manipulation protocols of fractional states, e.g. Majorana fermions, as well as topological phases in irradiated graphene and driven quantum spin models.
